Maid abuses child, caught on video

A video on Stomp of a maid physically abusing a young child has shocked and outraged netizens.

The contributor of the video said this actually happened to the child of his sister's friend.

The case in the video happened in Malaysia in 2007, and the maid was sentenced to 24 months imprisonment.

After the video was posted, my paper conducted a poll which found that 15 of 20 young parents do not trust domestic workers enough to leave their children alone with them.
